Rockets guard Jeremy Lin went through an extended shooting session on Thursday as he attempts to return from a grade-1 right knee sprain and contusion.
The Rockets announced on Wednesday morning that center Omer Asik will be out for one week with a right thigh contusion. The team said he will be re-evaluated after that time.
What was nearly a turnover turned into an easy basket for Omer Asik against Utah on Monday.
Heading into Monday night’s game, The Grizzlies had won five consecutive games against the Rockets at the FedEx Forum, or as it’s more popularly known – the Grindhouse.
